It begins...Getting there...

 

Closer...Almost...

 

SO CLOSE

It's safe to say I was very excited for PAX East this year. It's also safe to say that Joe and Colin are very patient with me.

 

PAXXXXXXXXX

I've said it for three years in a row now...but PAX East is the best gosh darn show of the year. They display the words "Welcome Home" on the enormous video screen outside the convention hall every year and I can't think of a more fitting slogan for a show. PAX is home. It's a collection of almost all of my favorite things packed under one roof and for me it is the very definition of happiness. But enough about me.

PAX was rad.

This was our second year officially "covering" the show and if I'm honest I think we put a great episode together for you. While last year's jam was split up into a two-parter, this year we were able to stay on track (for the most part) and lay down a tasty 2 hour review featuring discussions with developers, reviews on games both hot and unknown, and details of our experiences in hunting down Penny Arcade employees in order to exchange goods...and pins.

Rumor has it next year's show moves us back to early March again which means one thing: LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN. Brb. I have to go message Joe and Colin.

Photos can be found here. Enjoy!

A thousand apologies for the short post this weekend. I'm literally out the door on my way to PAX East for the weekend. Expect lots of PAX related stuff to follow.

For now enjoy episode 214 with Molly, Mike, and Ryan. Three more members of the illustrious Hero Army. This week we dive deeper into the world of the Army and we also touch on some local events for the 2016 Free Comic Book Day. Do us a favor and check it out, yeah??

Now if you'll excuse me:

TO PAX.

So we had a whole agenda this week to talk about a bunch of different things. Movies, television. All real good comic related stuff.

That um...that didn't last long.

We kind of just talked about Batman v. Superman the whole time. Don't get me wrong. It's great. But it's also kinda spoilery. So just a heads up before you listen to our sweet sweet voices this week.

Enjoy!

Yeah it's only been 5 episodes since Matt last joined us but honestly Wrestlemania just happened and I really wanted to hear him talk about it. We understand that there's been a lot of wrestling talk as of late but you can trust us when we say it makes for a fun time.

I mean come on just look at this chair:Seriously. This chair.

If you have questions about the chair I assure you they'll be answered during the episode. We go into extreme depth on this chair. It's really a great chair.

Also look at this link. It's a new show that Matt is a part of and it would be rad if you watched it. Typical OMV amirite? We are shameless in our non-stop plugging of our friend's stuff. Enjoy!

The weather is finally getting to the point where I don't want to shoot myself every time I step outside. This makes me happy.

Colin and Vicky went to Anime Boston last week. This also makes me happy because in a way it's the unofficial kickoff of con season. And that is just pure happiness bundled up into one beautiful sentence.

Join us this week for a quick wrap-up of Team CoVik....VikCo...ViCoria's adventures at AB and also for a preview of what's to come this year in terms of conventions, spending too much money, and getting depressed when we have to re-enter the real world.

That was a joke...but damn it's also painfully accurate...

Enjoy!
